Dolly Parton - Me and Little Andy

(Dolly Parton)

Late one cold and stormy night I heard a dog-a-barkin'
Then I thought I heard somebody at my door a knockin'
I wondered who could be outside in such an awful storm
Then I saw a little girl with a puppy in her arms.

Before I could say a word she said, "My name is Sandy
And this here is my puppy dog it's name is little Andy."
Standing in the bitter cold in just a ragged dress
Then I asked her to come in and this is what she said.

"Ain't ya got no gingerbread? Ain't ya got no candy
Ain't ya got an extra bed for me and little Andy
Patty cake, a baker's man, my mommy ran away again
We was all alone and didn't know what else to do
I wondered if you'd let us stay with you.

Giddyup Charlie horse, going to the mill. can we stay all night
If you don't love us, no one will, I promise we won't cry
London Bridge is falling down, my daddy's drunk again in town
We was all alone and didn't know what we could do
We wondered if you'd let us stay with you."

She was just a little girl, not more than six or seven
That night as they slept the angels took them both to heaven
God knew little Andy would be lonesome with her gone
Now Sandy and her puppy dog won't ever be alone.

"Ain't ya got no gingerbread? Ain't ya got no candy?
Ain't ya got an extra bed for me and little Andy..."
